Yes. That is terrific. I like written stuff too. I have difficulty remembering stuff from sessions too. Hard stuff has a hard time sinking in. But that is good stuff. Do ya reckon??

> I'm not sure what your childhood was like alex, but even if you were never beaten, molested, etc, emotional neglect/abuse is still very damaging. In fact it is the emotional abuse aspect of all the other types of abuse that is the most damaging.

Does that apply to you too??

The unexpected.
I am an active information processor
etc etc.
There is a lot of truth in that.

So you aren't going to run away, eh?

Take care of yourself when you are feeling vulnerable.
But it is a good sign.
Don't know if this will make much sense but it is when you feel vulnerable that the boulders can move on the inside.
